Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

The brightest baby in Britain?

London -  She is just six months old but she can talk, is toilet-trained and can even "conduct" an imaginary orchestra to a music beat.

At an age when most kids play with their teddies, Izabella Oniciuc prefers not to lower herself to such indignity, the Daily Mail reported Friday.

She asks for her potty when she needs to use it, and if it's not forthcoming, will apparently wait "for hours" for her parents to fetch it.

At their two-bedroom flat in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, Izabella is a picture of cuddly contentment. Astonishing as this is - most babies are 32 months old before their mums can count on clean  nappies - her potty training is the least of it.

Her parents claim she can ask for milk, loves to read...and even knows a smattering of Romanian, her mother Reluca's native tongue.

Experts say Izabella's behaviour is "extremely unusual" - and her parents clearly believe that their little girl is something of a genius.
